From the day I moved out of my parents home, I took on all the jobs that once belonged to my Mom and Grandmother. Cooking the meals, and cleaning up after. Vacuuming the floor, scrubbing, even cleaning the toilets, but there is one job that I have yet to be able to master. One huge monster that has been lingering around now for 12 years. It’s my laundry. No matter how many loads I do in a day there is always more. It’s like the never ending pile that just keeps growing. I kid you not. At any given time there will be 4 or 5 loads that need to be washed, 4 or 5 loads that need to be put away. And lets not even get into ironing…let’s just say I couldn’t even tell you where mine is, I haven’t used it in at least a year.
I think that the people who always have all their laundry done are lying…it’s just not possible. I’ve tried and tried, and I know that I can do just about anything I put my mind to. Though I think Arm & Hammer may have overheard me complain on twitter one too many times and decided that this girl needs some help.
So last week I received a package with three different bottles of laundry soap.
Designed to power out dirt and odours with special agents that trap soil in the wash water, rinsing away dirt and stains. Available in Clean Fresh and Clean Mountain Scent you laundry is sure to come out smelling fresh. Formulated for today’s technologically advanced washers, Arm & Hammer Original Laundry Detergent is designed for use in less wash water, but still rinsing away clean every time.
Arm & Hammer Essentials Power Gel
Is the first gel detergent made with biodegradable plant based soaps in Canada. It can be used to pre-treat stains though still gentle on fabrics. Arm & Hammer baking soda helps to freshen fabrics while the gel formula works to remove stains. Arm & Hammer Essentials Power Gel contains no phosphates or bleaches.
Attack the toughest stains with Arm & Hammers new gel formula. Quickly dissolve stains and rinse clean leaving no residue behind. While the gel is working to attack stains, the added power of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda helps to freshen your laundry.
Arm & Hammer Gel formula can be used to pretreat tough stains. Available in Ocean Breeze scent.
So far, I’ve used two out of three of the bottles sent. No, not the entire bottle. I have a lot of laundry, but not that much. Sheesh! Of the two I’ve tried, my favorite is the Arm & Hammer Power Gel Plus OxiClean. Why?? Because I have kids. Kids are messy, and it seems like every new piece of clothing that I buy gets some sort of stain on it. Just the other day Ben smeared strawberries all over one of his brand new school shirts. Then hid the shirt. Ack! How do you save a shirt that wasn’t pre treated? Arm & Hammer Gel Plus OxiClean worked. I just used a little to treat the stain directly before putting it in the wash, then washed like normal. When it came out there wasn’t a sign of the strawberries to be found!
But you know as well as I do that Arm & Hammer wasn’t only going to help me with my laundry. One of you lucky A Busy Mommy readers is going to get to try out this laundry detergent too! But when you’re finished doing your laundry, you’ll get to relax in comfort in a super soft Bath Robe and Slippers!
